Particularly economical, compact, powerful and focused on the essentials: the new uEye XLE camera family from IDS has been specially designed for high volume and price sensitive projects. Thanks to the space-saving design, a convenient USB3 interface and support for the USB3 Vision standard, industrial-cameras can be easily integrated into any image processing system. Customers can choose between single card cameras with or without C / CS or S lens mount as well as variants with coated plastic housing. The first models will be equipped with the 5 MP AR0521 sensor from ON Semiconductor.
The possible applications of the new camera family are almost limitless. “It will prove itself as much in the construction of small devices as in metrology, transport and agricultural applications,” explained Jürgen Hejna, product manager at IDS. But the cameras are also effective in traditional industrial applications such as surface inspections. Thanks to their compact form, the models find their place even in the tightest spaces, for example as on-board vision solutions. Due to the cost-optimized design, the cameras are particularly attractive for applications where costs are at the fore. The company offers a wide choice of economical lenses with the cameras.
All uEye XLE models have a USB3 interface (USB SuperSpeed, 5 Gpbs) and are fully GenICam compliant. The cameras can therefore in principle be used with any software that supports the USB3 Vision standard. For an optimal user experience, the company recommends the use of IDS peak. The free IDS peak software development kit provides all the required components from sample source code to the transport layer so that the customer can directly start developing their own applications.
